1982..a good year for music

Hey Sinners

Today in the Gumbo Shop we revisited 1982.  A big year in music.

With M-TV gaining popularity, I remember watching videos and this new form was fascinating (of course that was when M-TV actually played music videos).  I was in my first year of college and loving life. I saw one of my favorite bands from the front row that year- Crosby Stills and Nash.  Movies in ’82 were huge…

ET dominated the boxoffice, also Star Trek 2-The Wrath of Khan (KAHHHHNNN!!!!), Officer and a Gentleman, and one of my favorite movies – The Man From Snowy River.  1982 was also the year we lost John Belushi…what a waste…I feel he was just reaching a turning point in his career.
